Extract

In “Moral Issues and Voter Decision Making in the 2004 Presidential Election” (PS, April 2005, 201–209), D. Sunshine Hillygus and Todd Shields mistakenly describe the 2004 exit poll question as asking about “the most important issue facing the nation” (201) and “the most important problem facing the country today”(202). These texts should instead read “the most important issue in their presidential vote decision.” This correction does not affect the analysis or conclusions of the article.

Thank you to Kathleen Frankovic for calling attention to the authors' error in characterizing the 2004 exit poll question wording. The 2004 exit poll question referenced in the article asked voters: “Which ONE issue mattered most in deciding how you voted for president? (Check only one) [Health care, Moral values, Economy/Jobs, Terrorism, Iraq, Education, Taxes].” The authors' apologize for any confusion their error may have caused.
